Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis G80 than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis G80 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Genesis G80 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Genesis G80 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G80 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Genesis G80 has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G80 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Genesis G80 as you will in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
